Shyne To Drop A His First Single In Over 9 Years!
[lastfm]Shyne[/lastfm] is set to release the first official single from his upcoming album through a new deal reached between his Gangland Records, and Island/Def Jam. According to AllHipHop.com [lastfm]Shyne[/lastfm] will drop the single next Tuesday (April 13th), making it his first new single in almost 10 years. In February, Shyne inked a seven-figure deal with Island/Def Jam and began recording his album in Belize, where IDJ CEO [lastfm]L.A. Reid[/lastfm] hosted a press conference announcing the new business deal. Shyne is barred from entering the United States and was not allowed to enter the United Kingdom in February, due to his criminal record. Shyne, aka Moses Leviy, was released from prison in October of 2009, after serving over 9 years in prison for his role in a nightclub shootout in 1999, involving Bad Boy Records’ CEO [lastfm]Sean “Diddy” Combs[/lastfm] and his then girlfriend [lastfm]Jennifer Lopez[/lastfm]. Shyne was supposed to be featured on [lastfm]DJ Khaled’s [/lastfm]album Victory, but the track, named “All My Life,” featuring [lastfm]Akon[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Mavado[/lastfm], was dropped for legal reasons. According to reports, Shyne is collaborating with [lastfm]Scott Storch[/lastfm], who is said to be producing a large portion of the album. He is also working with producer Coptic, who has confirmed that he created a track for Shyne titled “Hand on My 45.”
